Ingredients Serving: 30

  1. Compound chocolate - I used Morde Dark compound 400 gms
  2. Dry fruits and nuts of your choice
  3. Silicon chocolate mould


  1. Method of melting chocolate using Double boiler. Chop the chocolate coarsely. Melt the chocolate using a double boiler.
  2. Double boiler is a bowl of hot water, with a lid on top. You need to place the bowl of chocolate pieces on top of the lid. Make sure that the inner part of the lid shouldn't touch the hot water.
  3. Method of melting chocolate using microwave: While chopping the chocolate start to keep them in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave on 60% power for one minute. Stop and whisk in between, that is after every 30 seconds till the chocolate melts
  4. Method of Chocolate making: Take your silicon chocolate mould. With the help of a small spoon start filling each cavity. If you want to make plain chocolates then you need not to do anything more. Just fill the mould.
  5. Tap the filled chocolate mould gently on kitchen counter. This step is very important. By doing this your chocolate will have a smooth finish after unmolding.
  6. Wipe off the edges of the moulds with paper napkin for that clean, sharp edge shop like chocolates. Keep in the refrigerator for an hour or two.
  7. Unmold the chocolates when set and wrap them in colorful chocolate wrapping papers. Store them in an airtight container. Keep them in a cool, dry place.
  8. I made fruit and nut Chocolates this time. For this, first coat the cavities of silicon mould lightly with melted chocolate. The idea is to make a chocolate shell first. Keep them in refrigerator for 15 minutes.
  9. Take out the mould. Put a single piece of nut or dry fruit of your choice in each cavity. Now fill the cavities completely with melted chocolate. Keep refrigerated.
  10. Do the next step as I've mentioned earlier for plain chocolates.
